This fee is to partially defray the rental cost of the building for the concerts held in December and May.  It also allows our concerts to be free to the public, family members and friends.  It is due in December and May, but may be paid at any time.  There may also be some small prop costs for each concert that go along with a specific song, and if your child is chosen to be in a specialty, there may be a small cost for an extra costume or prop. 

NO COST SPECIALTIES, SOLOS, AND NARRATIONS:  Each concert is put on solely by the TaVaci kids and each concert some are asked to be involved in a specialty song, sing a solo, be in a small ensemble, or recite a narration.  We will have extra rehearsals for these, but there is no cost for the extra rehearsals.

Megan Owen
Owner/Director/Teacher/ 3rd-7th Grade TaVaci Classes

I have had a passion for music since I can remember! I grew up playing the piano, participating in school musicals, and of course, performing in TaVaci. My love for music grew through my teenage years, when I became very involved in Madrigals and show choir. After high school, I opted for a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Teaching children has been another passion of mine from the time I was young. Once graduated, I taught 1st grade for a number of years and loved every minute! I am now the proud Mother of three handsome (and rambunctious) boys, one beautiful baby girl, and the wife of my loving husband Matt.
Music continues to be a major part of my life. I feel blessed to be part of TaVaci, as it combines two things that are very dear to me: music and children. The program has had a huge impact on me as well as my boys. It is so much more than music alone—it teaches children how to perform, how to love themselves the way they are, and how to be confident in all aspects of their life. I am grateful for TaVaci and the joy it has brought me and many others!


Karalee Kidd
Teacher/ Preschool-2nd Grade TaVaci Classes

Hello! I am Karalee Kidd and I am so excited to teach TaVaci! I was a TaVaci student for years when I was younger and that’s when I met a good friend named Megan Parson, now Megan Owen! We sang together from then on in TaVaci, School Choirs, and lastly as Madrigals when we graduated from Box Elder High School in 2003.  Megan was President and I was the Treasurer.

I started taking Piano Lessons when I was 4 years old from my mom, Gloria Deem. That’s where my love of music really began. I taught Piano Lessons and held Recitals for my students during my High School years of 9th to 12th grade. That’s where my love of teaching really began.  My mom also ran a Day Care in our home, so although I am the youngest of 6 kids, I was always surrounded by small children and I assisted her.   

After High School, I attended Utah State University, graduating in 2007, with my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education. In the middle of those year I married Justin Kidd and will forever more be a “Kidd”! I knew our little family would soon be growing, so after graduating, I decided to continue designing cabinets for my family’s business, Anvil Cabinet & Mill.  I still enjoy my time there and indeed our family did grow.  Our son Tate will turn 11 this year, followed by 3 girls: Kassidee turning 9, McKenzee turning 7 and Britnee turning 4. All of them, except Britnee have been involved with TaVaci, but Britnee knows several songs, thanks to the practice CDs.

Six years ago, I started teaching music to young children when I was called to lead the music in Primary.  I did that for 4 years. It brought back my love for music and teaching little kids.  I’m convinced that some of the most powerful moments come through music and watching little kids experience it.  You can see it in their eyes when they feel it. I am grateful for the opportunity to watch this happen with the TaVaci kids. I  know I have big shoes to fill and will do my best to keep the goals and purposes of Tavaci rolling forward.















What is TaVaci?

Children are taught by qualified directors how to sing correctly, drama, music theory and performing skills.  Now here’s the sneaky part: they are also building self-esteem, using their imagination, developing talents and improving communication skills.  All while having fun!

The mission of TaVaci Inc. is to provide an educational program designed to teach the performing arts to children in a way that will help them develop invaluable life skills. We believe that the self-esteem, the creative abilities, the communication skills and the ultimate success of children will be enhanced through the study of music, drama and performance under the direction of trained and dedicated TaVaci instructors.


Classes are taught on a weekly basis during the school year , September to May, and are divided according to age:


Preschool-Kindergarten

1st-2nd Grade
3rd-4th Grade
5th-7th Grade
Teen Group
